FGCZ Genomics User Lab

Our user lab is dedicated to UZH/ETH users who would like to run protocols that we do not offer in service mode.
It is also possible to perform DNA extractions and check the Quality of the samples to be submitted for Sequencing Services.
We give access to benches equipped with pipettes and all the devices needed for NGS library preparation.

We offer access to:

1) NGS library prep station (for protocols not offered in service mode)
2) Covaris Sonicators
3) Maxwell automated RNA/DNA extraction device
4) Sample QC check on a Agilent Tape Station / Fragment Analyzer device
5) 10X Chromium for Single Cell Applications
6) Illumina Nextseq 2000, Illumina Nextseq 500, Illumina Miseq walk in access

Fees (UZH/ETH users):

Devices (Agilent, Covaris, Maxwell..): We charge an access fee of 40 CHF + used consumables.
NGS User Bench: 80 CHF per day (includes basic supervision and access to devices) + used consumables

Would you like to book a bench and/or a device in our user lab?

1) To access the FGCZ Genomics user lab please register and send a project request via B-Fabric Sample submission guidelines

2) Check the availability on our Instrument Reservation System and ask the FGCZ team (sequencing@FGCZ.ethz.ch) to place a reservation. Please email sequencing at FGCZ.ethz.ch for details. ~~

If you never used a device before, please specify you need assistance.
